The art of wearing jewelry is not a new one; throughout history, both men and women have used it as a status symbol. For example, in Victorian England, people wore pearls to signify their tears after the death of someone close. Wearing bands on the left ring finger also represents that person being married while today some wear small diamonds instead for a style statement. Nowadays, most people simply wear jewelry without thinking about the meaning behind it. India is a country with its own unique history and culture. Their people are not shy when it comes to wearing intricate jewelry, often embellishing themselves in septum nose rings that have gained popularity outside of India as well. Some people are getting their septum pierced to wear semi-circular bands while others just want temporary fake rings. If you are unsure about following this trend, it might be worth looking at the stylish look below.
If you change your mind about the piercing, don’t worry. Your nose is a very forgiving place when it comes to scarring which should be minimal if done properly.

Rebellious behavior, such as teenagers getting a tattoo or piercing their nose or tongue may seem like an act of defiance. But in other parts of the world, these actions have cultural meaning.
